Very nice consumer camera

Summary: I find this camera easy to use, easy to hold, lightweight to pack around, and it takes great photos. Not a full sensor camera, but enough data in the raw photos to get very nice enlargements. The options for still photography are good. There are enough choices for customizing and for letting the camera make the exposure for the camera operator. The swing-out, and rotatable screen is really wonderful.
Excerpt: After purchasing camera I discovered it can not put "date taken' on the front of the picture. I am retired, take lots of long trips and hundreds of pics on each trip. My other camera applies 'date taken' to the front of my pics., I download them to my PC and when I view them the 'date taken' info is very helpful. With the T4i, it downloads the pics to my PC without "date taken' on front of pic.
Pros: Bright LCD, Easy to use, Excellent Image Quality, Quick start-up time, Simple controls/menu, Solid operation, Superior build quality
Cons: heavy/bulky, Missing features/settings, Noisy, Short battery life
Summary: Shipping was on time, everything came in one big box. The card reader isn't the same one that is shown in the picture but it works. The tripod on the other hand is a piece of junk. The camera mount doesn't even stay on the tripod securely, it comes loose after moving it around a bit. If you were to hold the tripod at an angle the camera is surely going to fall right off.
Summary: Ease of use. Willingness controls. Lightweight and strong. With the lens Canon EF-S 18-55mm photos are poor. Buy this product for its low price and good features. It is a good product for those starting out in photography.
Excerpt: in P setting will only take 3 pics then stop and start taking pics again in jpeg or raw modes .thought it might be the memory card but put card in my t2i and worked perfectly at 31 pics without stopping.did have this problem with my t2i sent it to canon and said it was a bad shutter this unit is only 2 weeks old. in manual mode i do a 10 second exposure and will take 30 seconds to one minute to process. t2i takes only 1 to two seconds to process with same card....
Pros: Easy to use, Excellent Image Quality, Nice features/settings, Quick start-up time, Simple controls/menu
Summary: I bought this camera primarily for the auto focus video and was disappointed in the performance. I read many other reviews but thought I would give the auto focus a chance. It is slow to auto focus even with the 18-135 mm STM lens although there is a definite improvement over the 50 mm lens. Its auto focus is ok when there is left to right movement but it is slow to auto focus when something is coming towards the camera.
Excerpt: I've been a Canon user since I was a kid who fell in love with films and cinema. I used to steal my fathers 8mm Canon camcorder to make "films" with my friends. I've since progressed to Canon Super 8 camera, Canon miniDV, Canon HDV, and finally Canon HDSLR. I've never had a camera that was not Canon, and I've had every generation of Canon video cameras except for the Cinema EOS which I cannot possibly afford. I could almost make a Canon museum.
Pros: Bright LCD, Easy to use, lightweight/portable, Nice features/settings, Simple controls/menu, Solid operation, Superior build quality
Cons: moire and aliasing, not as sharp in video mode, not enough detail in video mode
Summary: I wanted to love the T4i and bought one as soon as it was made available. Most of the new features of the T4i are for "point-n-shooters" who want the camera to do all the thinking for them (there's nothing wrong with that); However, I shoot manual most of the time so these features are not a selling point for me.
Summary: When choosing the Canon EOS 650D, I spent a long while debating which lens to get. In the end I choose to get the 18-135mm lenses as I had the extra cash. I'm a beginner when it comes to photography and figured the larger lens would be more versatile. The lens it self suffers from heavy chromatic abrasion and vignetting. Enough so that it can effect the quality of the picture. It can be corrected with a program like lightroom, if you're lucky enough to have that.
